AAMA Releases New Design Guide for Structural Silicone Glazing

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) recently released a new document to describe proper guidelines and glazing procedures for structural glazing. AAMA SSGDG-1-17, the Structural Silicone Glazing (SSG) Design Guidelines, reviews a glazing that offers a unique appearance and simplicity of construction that often cannot be achieved any other way.

Prior AAMA publications included TSGG-04, two-sided structural glazing for skylights, and CW-13-85, a structural glazing design guide. However, it was decided to combine them into a single guiding document regarding structural glazing, for both vertical and sloped applications.

“Combining two documents that discussed structural glazing made learning about the process simpler for those seeking that information,” said Kelly Broker (Dow Performance Silicones), Chair of the AAMA Structural Sealant Design Guidelines Task Group. “We feel this makes the knowledge formerly contained in both more accessible.”

Properly designed and installed, structural silicone has performed well in the presence of UV exposure, adverse weathering conditions and in extremely harsh environments. These qualities allow structural silicone sealants to continue as the only type of sealant approved for structurally adhered glazing applications.

AAMA SSGDG-1-17, as well as other AAMA documents, may be purchased from AAMA’s online store. More information about AAMA and its activities can be found on the AAMA website.

“Modular construction isn’t exactly new… But it could be on the rise,” according to @AAMAinfo member, Eric Thompson.
Is a Modular “Disruption” on the Horizon?

Very cool to see new @AAMAinfo members at #IBS2019, including @MarvinWindows showing off large panel doors for corner applications (wow!) and @ODL_Doorglass with new colors for enclosed blinds (guided by input from homeowners).
